It's almost Friday...

and they say we may get some snow. SNOW? It's almost the middle of March, what the heck happened to the 70 degree weather we were having?? It's 30 in the craft room this morning and of course I've moved all my craft stuff back in there. I'm just wasting time waiting for the heater to warm it up in there.....

I've got a couple of cards to show you today. Let's get on to them.

The first card I'm going to show you is a card that I made with my new TAC set called S.W.A.K. I think that the images in this set are just adorable. Remember when Close to my Heart was D.O.T.S.? This set reminds me of those images.

I stamped the image from TAC's S.W.A.K. and water colored it in. I used my nestabilities Large Labels to punch out the image that I sponged Pink Passion ink on, and again to punch out the Pretty in Pink piece behind it. I ran a piece of Orchid Opulence thru the CB with my swiss dots folder and attached that and a piece of DP to a piece of Pink Pirouette paper. I punched slots on either side to run the ribbon thru. I had this idea to do something with the ribbon and didn't - otherwise I would not of punched the slots. For the inside I stamped the carrot from Embossing Arts Company and the saying from D.O.T.S. and I was complete.

Now the next card is a card I made to participate in the sketch challenge on SCS for this week. I thought that it was kinda unusual and had to do it. It is something that I would of never thought of.

The base card is Apricot Appeal and I layered it with Orchid Opulence and a piece of DP from Best Creations that I got from my LSS. I thought that it reminds me of an Easter egg.... The image is from Diamonds also, I water colored it and I layered it on to a piece of Orchid Opulence that I cut with my nesties Large Label and attached that to a piece of Pretty in Pink that I cut with my Labels 2 nestie. Behind the triangle piece I punched a scallop edge with my SU! scallop punch.

All in all it was a fun sketch to work with.

And if you have not noticed I have a "different" kind of blog candy going on. Scroll down to check it out. Until tomorrow!

Have a great day!

I really like your Easter cards Joani! The second one is my fave for whatever reason...guess I like the triangle. Both are fab though. I like the Happy Easter sentiment on the first one. Is it a stamp or computer font?
